The Mystery of Mega Man 11's Missing Star Force Skin Has Been Solved

Shooting star.

Mega Man 11 developers finally revealed the story behind the missing Star Force outfit that was discovered online.

According to a translated segment from the Rockman 11 Production Note book (thanks Rockman-Corner, 4am_sandlake, Hayden). According to the developers the Star Force outfit was created as a placeholder for Tundra Man's upgrades, and a photo of it was accidentally taken and published in a January 2018 issue of Game Informer.

From the Mega Man 11 Production book.

"When there was still no design for the Tundra Man weapon, Mr. Ueda created a Shooting Stary [Star Force] style model as a place holder during development. It seems the magazine journalist that came took a photo of it... Sorry for confusing fans. We blame Ueda."

So unfortunately, there's no secret Star Force outfit in the game, and it makes sense if you look at the image in Game Informer as Mega Man appears to be using the Tundra powers with the placeholder Star Force outfit.

You can check out our Mega Man 11 review where we awarded Capcom's new Blue Bomber a 4.5 out of 5 citing "the same high-quality platforming that made the Blue Bomber a household name in the '80s and 90's." Mega Man 11 is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
